Q. What Is A Septic System?

A. The septic system is basically an on-site sewage treatment and disposal system.

Q: Why Is it necessary to get my tank pumped on a regular basis?

A. -"The Voice" 1995

The sludge (inorganic matter) that accumulates in the bottom of the tank must be pumped out periodically. There is no additive that can be introduced into the septic tank to rid the tank of inorganic sludge that settles to the bottom of the tank. It must be pumped out! If not pumped out, it will eventually overflow into the absorption area, causing it to fail.

Since solids will continue to build up at the bottom of the tank, it is imperative that the septic tank be pumped out periodically. Remember, sludge is not biodegradable and if it is not pumped out, it will accumulate until it overflows.

​The recommended maintance time for an average septic system is 3-4 years. (This frequency may alter based on number of people in the household as well as how closely the below suggestions are followed.)

Q. Why Is Pro-Pump More Beneficial For My System Than RidX?

A. Any type of bacteria added to your septic tank can help with the break down of the solids and crust in your system. The difference in using or not using live bacteria can be 1-5 years between cleanings.
The price of Rid-X vs. Pro-Pump is also a factor in determining which is going to give you more bang for your buck. Rid-X will cost you around $10.00 a month, where as Pro-Pump costs as little as $35.00 a year (+tax) or a little less than $3.00 a month. You could literally be flushing money down the toilet.
The amount of bacteria in the product is the most important piece of information. Pro-Pump contains 12 select different types of bacteria, while the others may not contain that. If you are unsure how much bacteria those competitors products contain call the 1-800 number on the back of the bottle and they will let you know...if they even know.
Pro-Pump is the only product that increases its bacteria over both the 7 day and 14 day periods thereby giving Pro-Pump a much more active and extended life. Solids break up faster and continue to do so over a longer period of time than the other brands.

Q: What are some things I can do to help keep my septic system in proper working condition?

A: ​First and most important thing is to get on the maintenance schedule of a local licensed hauler. Getting your tank pumped on a regular basis is the single most important way to keep your system in good condition. Here at All Weather Sewer Service, Inc. we put our customers on a follow up schedule, specific to their system, and give them a reminder call when their date comes up. We do the remembering so you do not have to.
Frequency of pumpings are based on the full time residents in your household, the size of your tank, the condition of your tank based on frequency of pumpings, etc.
The following habits can help improve the condition of your tank which we observe during our pumpings.
  • Using less bleach and more natural cleaners can improve the bacteria in your tank. The more bacteria in your tank the less crust and organic material that builds up. There are a list of natural cleaners you can make at home on our website. (coming soon) You can also visit our pintrest page were there are many other fun ideas related to septics.
  • Making your own soaps is a new trend that can save lots of money. Make sure you choose recipes that create a liquid soap or detergent versus the powdered type. The powdered type of soaps can build up in your lines or tank and cause backups.
  • Reducing the use of your garbage disposal to only what may accidentally accumulate in the bottom of your sink can decrease the amount of food particles and debris which can add  to the amount of material the bacteria has to break down. This can result in a heavy scum/crust layer.
  • Refraining from putting any grease down drains can not only reduce the scum/crust build up in tank it can reduce the potential for clogged lines which lead to nasty backups.
  • Placing the "flushable" wipes in the garbage instead of the toilet can keep scum/crust layers to a minimum and can prevent motors and pumps from failing due to clogged parts.
  • Do Not flush feminine napkins or tampons down toilet.
